WWII News 1941-05-18 Walter Winchell


Published May 18, 1941


This is a contemporary amateur home recording of a live WWII-era radio news broadcast (see note below). This is the May 18th, 1941 installment of Walter Winchell's program of news and commentary, presented in Winchell's characteristically sensationalist style. The program is broken up between three sides on two 10" 78rpm disks; I have joined these together, but there are gaps between the sides. There is also some noise and a few choppy spots near the beginning, and some speed variation. The only information on the disk label is "Walter Winchell 5/18/41".

Notes

This is a contemporary WWII-era home recording of a live radio broadcast. It is from one of a batch of 40 twelve-inch plastic-on-aluminum "Audiodisc" home recording disks that were salvaged from a garage, still packed in their original wooden crates. These recordings often start and stop abruptly and contain some noise and static, but with digital cleanup most are quite listenable. The only information I have about these recordings is the brief handwritten descriptions on the labels, so sometimes the content is a bit mysterious.
